Leo and Pisces: Compatibility in Sex, Love, and Friendship

If there’s one thing to be said about a Leo and Pisces love relationship it’s that they are completely, totally, and incredibly incompatible. In fact, this is a love match that should be avoided. Leo and Pisces make for a decent friendship, however, there will be a lot that they’ll clash on. Let’s dive into their personalities a little bit more and see why and how it doesn’t work:

Leo and Pisces Compatibility


The Leo Zodiac 

  • The Leo zodiac sign is ruled by the sun, the center of our solar system. The Leo sign has very bold, bright, and dominant personalities. 
  • The Leo sun sign is represented by a lion, which symbolizes courage and strength. 
  • As a fire sign, a Leo is enthusiastic, bold, a natural-born leader, and an entertainer at heart. 
  • As a fixed sign, Leo’s stubbornness is unmatched. They will stick to something until the very end. 
  • Leo personality traits: 
    • Passionate and energetic 
    • Courageous and strong 
    • Adventurous 
    • Funny 
    • Stubborn 
    • Natural born leaders with ambition 
    • Arrogant attention seekers 
    • They’ll typically put themselves and their needs first 
  • Leo man personality:
    • A man who wants to be treated like a king: he wants to receive gifts and be showered with attention.
    • Charming 
    • Don’t worry about whether or not this man will be loyal–once he commits, he’s all in.
  • Leo woman personality:
    • This woman will want to be treated like royalty, showered with affection, and gifts. 
    • She will want to be the center of someone’s world.
    • A dominant woman, in love and in her career.
    • She wants to love and be loved 
  • In astrology, every person has a sign in the moon, rising, and Venus placements in their zodiac chart. Your moon represents your inner self, your rising (or ascendant) is how people see you when they first meet you, and Venus represents love and beauty. 
    • If your moon sign is in Leo, you are more susceptible to being sensitive when being criticized. They can also be dramatic and overbearing when they are at their worst. 
    • If your Venus sign is in Leo, you will most likely express your love in physical ways. You crave stability and security in a relationship. 
    • If your rising sign is in Leo, you have a magnetic personality! You are confident and charismatic and excited about doing new things.

Leos want to be treated like royalty. They want to be spoiled rotten by their friends, family, and partners. They aren’t going to last in a relationship where their texts are ignored or their birthdays are forgotten. They need someone who is going to send good morning messages, surprise them with gifts, and drown them in compliments. Otherwise, they are going to look for attention elsewhere. They need to be in the spotlight at all times. They cannot stand the thought of being ignored. 

Leos have a selfish side. They will always put themselves first. They will consider themselves a priority because they believe they deserve the best. Although they might make self-centered decisions at times, they are extremely loyal to their partners. Once they commit to someone, they aren’t going to cheat. They aren’t going to stray. They might flirt with others in order to get more attention, but they will never take it too seriously.

The Pisces Zodiac 

  • Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune, the god of the sea, and the ruler of deep emotions. The Pisces star sign is also believed to be ruled by Jupiter, the planet of intuition and philosophy. 
  • The Pisces symbol is two fish swimming in unison, which is represented by the Greek mythology story of a fish who saved the goddess and god of love, Aphrodite and Eros, from a sea monster. 
  • As a water sign, this zodiac is empathetic and compassionate. They tend to lead with their heart rather than their head. 
  • As a mutable sign, a Piscean will often adjust their feelings to fit the needs of whoever they’re surrounded by. 
  • Pisces personality traits: 
    • Generous, selfless 
    • Intuitive, empathetic
    • Friendly 
    • Aren’t afraid to dream big but might be afraid to follow through on those dreams  
    • If their lover needs a shoulder to cry on, this sign will be there to comfort and cry with them. 
  • Pisces man personality traits: 
    • The kind of man who lives to please others. He will put others’ happiness over their own. 
    • He loves to laugh and will do anything to make you laugh! 
    • Bottles up his emotions and battles them internally 
    • He wants to be helpful and save the day.
  • Pisces woman personality traits: 
    • She is a kind, compassionate, and quite a romantic woman
    • She loves to laugh and won’t want a partner who takes themselves too seriously 
    • This woman is often perceived as naive or vulnerable because she’s very trusting of others. If you break her trust, she’ll hold a grudge against you.
  • In astrology, every person has a sign in the moon, rising, and Venus placements in their zodiac chart. Your moon represents your inner self, your rising (or ascendant) is how people see you when they first meet you, and Venus represents love and beauty. 
    • If your moon sign is in Pisces, you are empathetic, sensitive, and can sometimes be vulnerable to the harsh realities of life. 
    • If your Venus sign is in Pisces, you are playful, charming, and romantic. You’ll sacrifice things for your loved ones.
    • If your rising sign is in Pisces, you tend to get overwhelmed in social situations after a while. You like to find solitude with creative outlets. 

Pisces are sweet, compassionate, and selfless. They care about others more than they care about themselves, which is why they will always put their loved ones ahead of themselves. They will do anything for a friend or family member in need. They won’t care if the timing is inconvenient. They won’t care if they have to sacrifice their own happiness in the process. They are reliable and they are consistent, so they will never let you down.

Pisces are also known for being hopeless romantics. They aren’t going to settle for a relationship that is strictly physical. They will want more than good sex, more than a skilled lover. They will also want a best friend. They want someone who makes them laugh, someone who cheers them up when they’re upset. They can’t stay in a relationship that is too serious. They need to have fun. They’re looking for an equal that they consider their life partner, not a piece of meat or eye candy.

Leo and Pisces: Friendship Compatibility 

  • These two are complete opposites: Leo is straightforward, arrogant, and often demanding, while Pisces is gentle and empathetic. 
  • However, this could be a pretty productive friendship as long as Leo leads and Pisces encourages them to do so.
  • A Leo and Pisces friendship will clash sometimes because Leo likes to take charge while Pisces likes to stay quiet and think. However, Pisces doesn’t mind adapting to situations, so as long as they’re willing to put up with the demanding lion, this could work.

Leos are much more abrasive than a soft-hearted Pisces. They handle themselves in completely different ways. Their opposing personalities can easily clash because Pisces like to treat others with kindness, no matter the situation. Meanwhile, Leos are pretty blunt about their thoughts and opinions. They don’t stop to consider how other people might react to what they’re about to say. Overall, Pisces assume the best and Leos assume the worst. They view the world through different lenses. 

However, these two signs have the potential to become friends as long as they put their differences aside. Pisces have to learn how to deal with Leo’s stubbornness and thirst for attention. Meanwhile, Leos need to learn how to talk to Pisces in a gentle, reassuring way. They both need to put in the effort to make sure the relationship doesn’t become one-sided or combative. As long as they’re aware of their own flaws, they should be able to make a friendship work.

Leo and Pisces: Sex and Love Compatibility 

  • A Leo Pisces relationship is so wrong just because they go after two drastically different kinds of love
  • The Pisces lover will appear to their Leo lover as someone who is too separated from their own desires and strengths, while Leo will seem to Pisces too separated from their emotions. 
  • The Leo partner will seem open, direct, and insensitive while the Pisces partner will lack confidence, initiative, and strength. 
  • There will be lots of disrespect and misunderstanding in a Pisces Leo relationship and this will eventually lead to their parting.

These two signs aren’t going to have a stable relationship. If they end up dating, a Leo will take advantage of a Pisces. After all, Leos are selfish and Pisces are selfless, so Pisces will always be running around, trying to please their partner. They will give and give without getting anything in return. Although they are happy to help the people they love, they are eventually going to grow tired of putting in all of the effort. The relationship will be completely one-sided, which will cause conflict and tension.

Although these signs won’t make a great match, a Pisces probably won’t be the one to initiate a breakup. They are too trusting of others. They get their hearts broken easily because they see the best in everyone. They won’t want to walk away from a relationship, even when it’s clear it isn’t working. Leo will have to be the one to take control of the situation and walk away. Otherwise, these signs will remain in their self-destructive relationship.

Zodiac Compatibility with Leo or Pisces

Leo Compatibility:

  • If you’re a Leo, you’ll find that it will be a good love with a fire sign, like Sagittarius or Aries. Leo and Aries are able to bond on a passionate, sexual level just as much as they can connect on an emotional level too. Leo and Sagittarius are passionate and will have no problem being impulsive and aggressive and fighting with harsh words because they always make up in the end.
  • If you’re a Leo, it won’t be a strong love match with an earth sign, like Virgo or Capricorn. Leo and Virgo won’t be able to understand each other and their contrasting personalities: a Virgo is nurturing and reserved in love and Leo is passionate, confident, and often selfish. Leos are hot and passionate and Capricorns are cool, calm, and practical. Not only will there be emotional challenges, but sex will be quite boring.

Pisces Compatibility: 

  • If you’re a Pisces, you’ll find that you’re quite compatible with fellow water sign Scorpio. When Pisces and Scorpio come together, they will get carried away in a romantic, fairytale kind of love. They’re on the same page emotionally, intellectually, and physically (on a good day). Expect sensuality and tenderness as well as possessiveness and control issues.
  • If you’re a Pisces, you will have a really hard time getting along with an air sign, like Libra or Aquarius. Libra and Pisces seem to have nothing in common in terms of intellect, shared activities, emotions, how they do things in the bedroom. Pisces will struggle with Aquarius’ inability to let their emotions flow out of them and Pisces will be too inflexible for Aquarius’ need for constant change.

Leos will have the easiest time finding love with a fire sign. They will have strong chemistry inside and outside of the bedroom. Every day will be a new adventure for them. Even though they will have their fair share of fights, they will get over their arguments quickly. They have bad tempers, so they might say things they regret, but they will always forgive each other. They will come out of the situation even stronger than before. 

Meanwhile, Pisces are going to get along best with water signs. They will connect on an emotional level, so they won’t have trouble opening up to each other about the way they are feeling. They won’t hesitate to act vulnerable around each other. They will show their full, uncensored selves. Of course, they will also have a strong physical connection. Their time in the bedroom will be unforgettable. Their love will feel like a fairytale.

Leo and Pisces: Relationship Compatibility with Leo or Pisces

Leo man + Pisces woman:

This combination of fire and water will have its issues and it will be hard for them to find balance in the relationship. The Leo man is intense and passionate when he wants to be, and is also very arrogant and cocky. The Pisces woman is sensitive and emotional and also enjoys a level of privacy. Although they are very passionate in bed, they are not on the same level of understanding each other with emotions and respect.

Pisces man + Leo woman: 

This is a quite unusual pairing. While she’s courageous, bold, and aggressive, he’s empathetic, helpful, and sentimental. These two are able to understand each other–to an extent. They both have positive qualities that they can bring to the table, but they just have to be patient and try and understand one another. As long as they work on themselves and their flaws, they could potentially make this work.

Leo compatibility with a Leo:

No matter if it’s a Leo woman and woman, man and man, or man and woman, a Leo-Leo relationship will be bold, fiery, and passionate. They will most likely put themselves in the center of attention whenever they can, and oftentimes it will be a “fun” competition for the spotlight. Sex will be wild and exciting, however, there will be little to no conversations about their emotions. 

Pisces compatibility with a Pisces:

No matter if it’s a Pisces woman and woman, man and man, or man and woman, a Pisces-Pisces relationship will be pretty great. They might have intimacy and trust issues at the beginning of the relationship, but once they get comfortable and talk about their feelings and use their emotional side for good, it can be that fairytale kind of love they’ve always dreamt about. 

Two Leos are going to have an exciting, fun, passionate relationship. They will go on plenty of adventures together and be playfully competitive. However, on the downside, they will keep their thoughts to themselves. They won’t open up to each other about their fears and insecurities. They will act like everything is fine. They will bottle up their emotions until they explode. This could lead to severe misunderstandings and unneeded arguments. 

Meanwhile, two Pisces are going to get along extremely well. As long as they build their relationship slowly so they can develop a strong trust with each other, there shouldn’t be many problems. Once they get to know each other, they will feel comfortable opening up to each other. They won’t keep any secrets. They won’t play any games. They will be completely honest with each other. They will have each other’s backs, no matter what happens.
